      Description

      The -PhysicalPath parameter of New-WebApplication isn't actually required to create a web application.

      help New-WebApplication -Parameter physicalpath
       
      -PhysicalPath <string>
          Required?                    false
          Position?                    Named
          Accept pipeline input?       true (ByPropertyName)
          Parameter set name           (All)
          Aliases                      None
          Dynamic?                     false

       

      By allowing physicalpath to not be set and managed by puppet, we can let other tools change physicalpath without conflicting with puppet. (when a new version of the app is deployed by say, Octopus Deploy, physicalpath is updated as part of the deployment and puppet leaves it alone.)
